Bamboo,s are very tough grasses, especially mine have to be.......lol. Last time they got watered was October last year. The only thing I do with them at the moment is prune out the weaker stems & some of the older ones & give them a bit more space. A purchased the black bamboo in 2010 & divided it with a sharp spade in the September & got 5 plants out it 3 large & 2 smaller. Last year the new growth romped away & got up to 10-11 feet in one season. These & the others I have are exposed to the elements.
